Squids and Dudes

Sketching in the studio on Friday, trying to find the etymology of the 'f word', and also drawing from video stills from the only known footage of a giant squid in habitat.

Train Sketchbook

I'm drawing in my sketchbook again, trying to reboot and draw for fun. I got some Tombow markers that are interesting, though I miss the Pentel color brush pens they used to carry at the art store. Here's some people in Brooklyn riding the D and 4 trains.

Debuting at SPX This Weekend

This Saturday and Sunday I will be selling comics at table W69 with Jess Worby, Mike Freiheit, Chris Duffy. I will also have a few Birdcage Bottom Books titles from J.T. Yost.

Mike Freiheit is visiting all the way from Chicago, and debuting Volume Two (?) of Monkey Chef, a comic about his time as a chef on a primate sanctuary in South Africa.

Here's a handy map I defaced for your convenience:

I'm excited about the comic I'll be debuting, Invisible Wounds. This sixteen-page comic is based on some beautifully written exchanges from Paul David Mansfield, an Army veteran of the Iraq War. After returning home from his last deployment, he discovers a lot about perceptions others have about his service, in addition to coming to terms with a diagnosis of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. His writing and story are so powerful, drawing comics has been an incredibly rewarding challenge. Hope to see you there!
